The number of coronavirus cases in Westminster increased by 71 in the last 24 hours, official figures show.
A total of 24,344 people had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 in Westminster when the UK coronavirus daily dashboard was updated on October 13 (Wednesday), up from 24,273 on Tuesday.
The rate of infection in Westminster now stands at 9,021 cases per 100,000 people, far lower than the England average of 12,441.
Across the UK, the number of recorded cases increased by 41,446 over the period, to 8,272,883.
However, there were no new coronavirus deaths recorded in the latest 24-hour period in Westminster.
The dashboard shows 328 people had died in the area by October 13 (Wednesday) – which was unchanged from Tuesday.
It means there has been one death in the past week, which is a decrease on two the previous week.
They were among 16,552 deaths recorded across London.
The figures include anyone who died within 28 days of a positive test result for Covid-19, and whose usual residence was in Westminster.
Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death, so some areas might see their figures revised down.
The figures also show that half of people in Westminster have received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.
The latest figures show 137,929 people had received both jabs by October 12 (Tuesday) – 50% of those aged 12 and over, based on the number of people on the National Immunisation Management Service database.
Across England, 78% of people aged 12 and above had received a second dose of the jab.
Unlike at local level, the national rate was calculated using mid-2020 population estimates from the Office for National Statistics.
